HR analytics is increasingly capable of examining existing evidence, both internal and external, and offering predictive solutions. Although many organisations may not have the capacity to offer these predictions, it is a worthwhile goal to aim for.

This paper, written by principal associate Peter Reilly, looks at the growing area of advanced HR analytics. Peter outlines the issues surrounding the definition of predictive analytics before considering why predictive analytics might be an appropriate move forward for organisations and how organisations might approach the implementation of such analytics.
